The Huntsville Museum of Art will wrap up this summer’s Classic Movies in the Park series with “Charlotte’s Web” (1973) on Friday, August 5, 2011. The free family event begins at sundown (between 7:30 and 8:30 PM) on the grounds outside the museum. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own chairs, blankets, and picnic suppers to the movie, although food is also available for purchase at the museum restaurant, Pan e Vino.
“Charlotte’s Web” is an animated adaptation of the beloved children’s classic by E.B. White. The film being shown at the museum is the original 1973 version, not the 2006 live action movie. Featuring the voices of well-known actors like Debbie Reynolds, Agnes Moorehead, Paul Lynde, and Henry Gibson, the movie tells the story of a remarkable friendship between a piglet and the spider who lives in his barn.
